Accreditation, Licensing, & Affiliations

Our innovative approach to mental healthcare earns accolades from press around the world, but it is our dedication to our client success that has helped us achieve accreditation from The Joint Commission, exceed licensing standards of care, and nurture affiliations with the following:

“I can be the leader in my family by educating myself about teen mental health and the role the whole family unit plays in it.”

Life as it once was has shifted. As a result, 70 percent of teens report experiencing mental health challenges. Some young people may be facing what is known as situational depression, which is different from clinical depression, but still requires treatment since any kind of depression can increase the risk of suicide.

According to @tmentalhealth, 1 in 5 young people suffers from a mental illness.

Today is #worldmentalhealthday and we want to #stopthestigma with a resource to help educate and aid conversations because mental health concerns are real and treatable.

Learn more about teenage depression and why it needs to be taken seriously via our profile.

A lot of schools have gone virtual, but bullying is still IRL.

Shame, fear, and hard-to-spot outward signs make it tough for parents to see the signs of bullying. Don’t be a victim of not knowing what to look for. Help #stompoutbullying by going to our link in bio to learn the signs and types of bullying and what can be done for both bullies and the bullied.

Yoga helps build self-regulation and executive brain functioning skills—that’s why it may help prevent risky teenage behaviors. When practiced in a therapeutic environment, the breathing, stretching, and poses of yoga help teens gain confidence and can provide a safe space to process emotions.

Yoga is so effective for supporting teen mental health that it is one of the experiential therapies used in Newport Academy’s outcomes-driven program for addressing conditions like depression, anxiety, and co-occurring disorders such as substance abuse.

So take a deep breath and then head to our link in bio to discover more benefits of engaging in mindful disciplines like yoga. 🧘🏽‍♂️🧘🏻‍♀️

Suicide prevention awareness doesn’t stop when September is over.

We’re grateful to our friends @twloha for all they’ve done to get the message out that there’s a lot #worthlivingfor.

As the preeminent provider of #teenmentalhealth treatment, we were honored to have once again provided a matching grant of $10,000 for their campaign and are here to continue their message of hope and healing from #mentalhealth conditions and co-occurring disorders.

Please consider joining us—and link in bio to read more on preventing suicide in the youth population.

Can our eyes heal our minds?

One of the many treatments we use at Newport Academy and @newport_institute to heal trauma is Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR)—an evidence-based therapy that uses eye movements in connection with memories to dissolve the stressors associated with them.

EMDR has many other benefits—peek at our link in bio to learn more!

It seemed like it was just teen moodiness, but it was actually depression.

For your teenager’s protection, it’s crucial to be empowered to recognize the difference between age-appropriate mood swings and what may be something more serious. #Depression can cause intense feelings and emotions, but it is treatable.

For young people suffering from depression or other mental health conditions, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) can help reframe negativity and develop long-term coping skills.

Learn more about this healing clinical modality that’s a key component of our #teenmentalhealth treatment program—link in bio or call us to talk confidentially to an Admissions Advisor: (844) 565-5316.

Suicide is the second leading cause of death among 15-29 year-olds globally.

The urgency around suicide prevention has been championed by our friends at @TWLOHA and we’re proud to stand with them for the 4th year in a row in raising awareness, providing education, and creating conversations around mental health to show people that there is so much #worthlivingfor.

We’re honored to have offered a matching grant of $10,000 toward their efforts to raise funds to provide treatment to those in need—which has already been met! However, your donation can still help TWLOHA reach its overall goal of $250,000. There are still many ways to get involved in any way you can and make what could be the difference between life and death.

We address the “why,” not just the “what,” of destructive behaviors. That translates to focusing on the #underlyingcauses, not just the symptoms of mental health concerns. Our treatment model is backed with the data of thousands of success stories and #changedlives.

We started more than 12 years ago with a female residential treatment center that offered an innovative mental healthcare alternative for teens and their families. Newport is honored to have recently been recognized by @Bloomberg for our philosophy based on compassion: “The whole mentality is ‘We’re going to love you so you can love yourself - it’s not a shame-based’ program.”

Today, we also offer male and nonbinary residential treatment programs in addition to outpatient, intensive outpatient, partial hospitalization, and telehealth programs. That means our reach now extends to teens, young adults, families, and loved ones. 🙌🏼

We invite you to discover more about our new sister program @newport_institute, a different kind of mental health treatment for young adults. Link in bio.
